Ohio

CURRENT STATUS: NO ACTIVE LEGISLATION

No Clear Path

There is no clear indication that lawmakers in this state are prepared to unite and move forward on a bill. This underscores the need for a strong, national movement.

In partnership with Death with Dignity, the grassroots group Ohio End of Life Options is working to ensure people in Ohio with a terminal illness can choose to die in a peaceful, humane manner in a place and time of their choosing.

Will you fight with us to work toward a Death with Dignity law for Ohio?

Ohio joins other states in fighting for death with dignity

Ohio lawmakers introduce SB249, Ohio Aid in Dying Act. A sponsor hearing on the bill takes place but the bill does not advance. An October 2018 survey by Public Policy Polling finds 87 percent of Ohioans support the right to “die in as humane and dignified a manner as they see fit,” while 75 percent support death with dignity legislation.

The fight’s not over

Join our movement to help people in other states fight for their right to die on their own terms.
